AUREA Technology offers the "best in class" single photon counting modules

The PIXEA is a high-performance picosecond laser based on gain-switched laser diode technologies managed by its flexible control unit and user-friendly software.

The PIXEA offers a large variety of wavelengths from 375 nm to 1990 nm. Designed for the most demanding applications, the PIXEA generates ultrashort laser pulses down to 20 ps with extremely-low timing jitter down to 3 ps, and excellent beam quality. Its Control Unit is able to continuously tune the repetition rate from single shot to 120 MHz, the pulse width from <40 ps to 5 ns and the peak power up to 1W. It can be easily triggered by an external source and remotely controlled by a PC via its USB port. Dual-mode (CW & pulsed) and different optical output options are also available.

Features

  • Continuously tunable from single shot to 80 MHz,
  • Master/Slave external or internal trigger,
  • Wavelengths between 375 nm and 1.990 nm,
